Ambassador Review: The Protium Hoodie with Hannah Campbell

Ambassador Hannah Campbell was among the first to receive a Protium Pull-On when they were first released last year.  Since then, she has found its versatility has made it her go-to lightweight fleece layer for almost any application.

The Protium is simple, neat and not unnecessarily feature-heavy. The features that it does have, however, have been well thought out and well executed. Here are my favourite bits:

  • The fabric – Montane’s Thermo Grid fleece fabric is stretchy and VERY comfy, whilst allowing for good thermoregulation and efficiency due to its waffle-like construction.
  • 1/3 length YKK front zip – The perfect length. Opens up wide enough for you to easily pull it on and is the perfect length for extra ventilation when you need to cool down.
  • Low profile flat locked seams, hems and cuffs – it has a close fit, so these features compliment the comfy inner face fabric, preventing chafeage when moving or layering over potential pinch points like armpits or wrists.

I love my Protium – it breathes well, keeps me warm and it’s the perfect layer to pop on under a softshell when it’s cold and windy (like… every day in wales!).  Whether you’re a daily mountain user or you just need an extra layer to keep you toasty at the start of a walk this is the fleece for you.
